More about Veterinary Vegan Network

A movement of qualified and trainee veterinary surgeons, nurses, paraveterinary individuals and their loved ones who believe that veganism is a moral imperative. We believe that those involved in the veterinary profession and in other animal care services should be leading by example.

VVN supports an animal rights-based approach to all forms of animal use and exploitation. We will work to educate both those within the sector and more widely.

Our mission is to be the centre of vegan activism within the veterinary and paraveterinary sectors and to support those leading by example.

VVN was launched in December 2015 by Shailen Jasani and Laila Kassam, co-founders of Ethical Globe. They are based in the United Kingdom. Melissa Resnick, a veterinarian based in the USA, and Nigel Davies, a UK-based veterinarian, joined them soon after.
